Daily Lit Recognition for November 27th, 2014
ChaosTrying to salvage you from the jaws of chaos
to find you’ve already been impaled on it’s teeth
Your heart is lost amidst debris of your chest that
have splintered and thrown themselves away from you
I’m reaching and reaching and reaching
but you’re so far out

Even though I am
Right by your side;
That it is I...
Who will make it come true.

It appears as if this may have been an army in the past, but you can find no pennants flying or other signs of the kingdom they may have served.
There is a single tent in the center encircled by rest of the camp. It bears its share of tears and holes, but is in better condition than all the others. Inside is a man in a velvet robe, with a long white beard. He sits in a corner of the tent staring at the last sips amber dregs in his bottle.
"A fine mess you've gotten into,” he thinks. "Help King Azalon win his war. Wonderful idea. Now here
